Bio-Vitamin B12 - 60 Tablets | Pharma Nord
Bio-Vitamin B12 supplements from Pharma Nord delivers vitamin B12 in an advanced, effective and bioavailable form.
Vitamin B12 is an important nutrient that contributes to energy-yielding metabolism, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and the nervous and immune systems. B12 is also important to support red blood cell formation and psychological function.
Not having enough vitamin B12 in the diet may be associated with various symptoms including tiredness and fatigue, and may even lead to a condition called pernicious anaemia.
B12 is a vitamin found primarily from meats and other animal-based foods. Vegetarians and vegans therefore, may be low in this essential vitamin and may require an effective supplement to ensure healthy levels.
For the human body, digesting and absorbing vitamin B12 requires a special protein known as ‘intrinsic factor’ which is produced in the stomach. Some people don’t produce enough of this protein and therefore can’t effectively absorb B12 from their food. This may also be an issue for those of us who take certain medications for high stomach acid, or those that have digestive issues involving low stomach acid.
When we dissolve the Bio-Vitamin B12 lozenge in the mouth, the vitamin is absorbed directly from the mucous membranes of the mouth, bypassing the rest of the digestive system.
Bio-Vitamin B12 uses an advanced form of vitamin B12 called ‘methylcobalamin’. Compared to the more common synthetic ‘cyanocobalamin’ types, methylcobalamin is found in nature.
Methylcobalamin is the only form of B12 directly engaged in the metabolism of homocysteine, converting it to methionine and then S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), which is helps support production of hormones and neurotransmitters (including those that affect mood).
